"On Tuesday 22 March 2011 we had a meeting."
There should be no comma after "Tuesday," right?

There are no hard and fast rules in BrE.
As the date of a letter, the traditional way was '22nd March, 2011'; this is now usually written '22 March 2011'.
In your sentence I would write 'On Tuesday 22 March 2011 we had a meeting'. There is no question for me of a comma after 'Tuesday', because I would then have to put a comma after 'March' and after '2011' - a little excessive. Unlike bhai, I never write 'the' and 'of' in dates, though I normally say them.
Note to other readers: I am not saying that bhaisahab is wrong; I am simply saying what I do and do not do. As I wrote in an earlier post, "There are no hard and fast rules in BrE".
Above all, Jasmin, be consistent.
